Atlas Mara, the newest entrant to the African banking market, plans to target low-income earners in additional to the multinational companies and middle-class consumers existing lenders have concentrated on, its chief executive said. "We want to do things outside the traditional banking model used in Africa. We want to service smaller businesses and the middle class and even further down the economic pyramid than that," John Vitalo told the Reuters Africa Investment Summit. Both domestic banks and international lenders are jostling for more business in Africa, enticed by maturing democracies, a younger and wealthier population, urbanisation and improving education and infrastructure levels.

A plainclothes soldier keeps watch during the opening of the annual full session of the NPC in BeijingBy Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) - Retired Chinese President Hu Jintao is not being implicated in a corruption probe into a former top aide, a senior government spokesman said on Friday, adding that the official was being investigated more over financial issues than political ones. Ling Jihua was demoted in September 2012 without explanation. Ling was dropped from his post as head of the party's General Office of the Central Committee, a powerful job similar to cabinet secretary in Westminster-style governments. He was then appointed as minister for the less influential United Front Work Department, which is in charge of co-opting non-Communists, religious groups and ethnic minorities, until being sacked last year when his graft probe was announced.
